One day an angel appeared to Adam.
The angel said, "Adam, God is going to create something wonderful for you."
Adam said, "Oh, what is it?
The angel said, "It’s not an "it," it’s a "she." God is going to make something called a woman." The angel continued, "This is going to be wonderful.
This woman will be made to be a lot like you physically,
only much more beautiful.
She will live to serve you at all times.
When you are tired, she’ll give you a massage.
When you are hungry, she’ll feed you.
She’ll come and bow down to you in the morning
and when you return from working in the garden in the evening.
She’ll live to serve your every pleasure each day."
"In addition," the angel continued,
"she will never argue with you or complain.
She wont nag you or talk back to you either.
For every command you give her,
she’ll simply reply, "yes master."
She’ll clean your house,
and tend to your every desire."
Adam had a sparkle in his eye and said with excitement, "Wow, that sounds amazing. I’d really like to have something like that. But what’s it going to cost me?"
The angel said, "Well Adam, it’s going to cost you your right arm, and a leg."
Adam thought about it for a while, and then replied, "What can I get for just a rib?"
Adam only spent a 'rib', but he did not get the same deal as the 'arm and the leg' would have bought.
